- Global Crime Governance; Trafficking in cultural property
As a continuation of last year’s preliminary research which was presented at the 2nd Universitas Lampung International Conference on Social Sciences (ULICoSS) 2021 and has also been published in its international proceedings, this research focuses on a specific issue, reviewing the implementation of Global Crime Governance (GCG) in solving the problem of illegal trade in cultural property. This initial research can be seen as an initial effort that will later develop studies on the illegal trade in cultural objects in the context of universal management within the area of global security studies. This work is based on data from the United Nations, UNESCO, UNODC, and INTERPOL revealing that there has still been global trade in cultural objects. Even though there are regulations regarding protection, prevention, and countermeasures of the illegal trade in cultural property; these efforts are still not commensurate with the losses suffered by the international community. The illegal trade in cultural property is a form of Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) that requires serious handling from all parties. By leveraging GCG provided by Jakobi (2020) as the main analytical framework, this study is a generally descriptive case study design whose data was obtained from various sources on the internet as well as various pages that contain information regarding the illicit trade in cultural objects and also efforts to overcome them by looking at the process/mechanism, actors, rules, values, institutions, cooperation, and also norms. This research shows that UNESCO has been central institution to govern international cultural order, but it is necessary to strengthen the agreements in establishing regulations related to the prevention and control of illicit trade in cultural property. In globally tackling this complex issue to effectively enforce the laws, institutions or entities or agents should avoid working in silo since every state and region has also specific regulations.
